OK, so I was hungry and forgot to snap a photo of my plate before I ate which if you'll use your imagination was really pretty with the croquettes and a side of bright green garlicky kale. So here's a photo of the two we were too full to eat. They kind of look like the mini mashed potato Devil's Towers from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but whatever, they were DELICIOUS. Also in my rush to get food out before tonight's premiere of True Blood, I totally forgot to add the nooch and soymilk to the sauce. What I did do was add a little liquid smoke and kombu when I cooked the black eyed peas. Black eyed peas have a lot of flavor for a bean. I should cook them more often. For dessert I whipped up some strawberries with cream cheese topping and fig balsamic vinegar. The cream cheese topping is powdered sugar mixed into some tofutti cream cheese, so it's kind of like a cheater cheesecake. The fig balsamic vinegar is just awesome. I usually choose one or the other to top berries, but both seemed like a pretty good idea, too. Yum.
